Remember President Obama’s earliest press briefings, and how reporter Jeff Zeleny asked Obama what most “enchanted” him in his first 100 days in office?
The press is still at it, but the tone has changed quite a bit. At Wednesday’s press briefing, NBC News’ Peter Alexander asked Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, “What are President Trump’s flaws?”
That question came out of left field for sure, but Huckabee Sanders still managed to answer, if not with a straight face.

Sanders: "Probably that he has to deal with you guys on a daily basis" pic.twitter.com/1cU0QnqnTb

Listen to that buzzing of the media hive after she answers. Seriously? What did they expect her to say? “Well, since you asked …”
When asked for an example of president's flaws WH press sec said it was the press. Pretty sure founders had other flaws in mind with #1A

No one has to ask the press their biggest flaw — it’s pretty obvious.
Then: "What has enchanted you, Mr. Obama?"

It's not a very good answer to a question you'd never ask a Democratic administration. https://t.co/laqNy93lWF

Like a job interview. "What's your biggest weakness?"
"I'm a perfectionist."

What kind of dumb question is that anyway.

You know how people prepare for the job interview question "what's your biggest flaw?"
I don't think this is on the list of correct answers https://t.co/A9tFRYQFVK

At least the public realized it was a dumb question to begin with and let it go.
